The World Card - No 21 in the Major Arcana
Good morning everyone.. Today we are looking at the World Card No 21 – the last card in the Major Arcana.
There is much symbology in this card as the last of the Major Arcana. The four fixed elements are depicted in the corners of the card (also depicting the four fixed signs of the Zodiac (Taurus - the bull, Leo - the lion, Scorpio- the eagle and Aquarius the enlightened man) and a dancing woman( the 5th element of the higher consciousness of man). The circle of laurel leaves denotes movement and progress. These creatures representing the elements were first described in The Book of Ezekiel in the bible. Christians have interpreted them as the gospels Mathew, Mark, Luke and John. When this card appears it describes the successful completion of a project or goal and the ending of one cycle.
There has been a wealth of experience that has brought you to this point and there is a sense of completion, freedom and spiritual wisdom, success, victory and achievement. Examples of this could be completing university, marriage, completing business projects etc. The elements and symbols represent the synthesis of the whole person, completion of a cycle and the continuation of life and advancement to a higher level. The number 3 here indicates the new way of thinking, the seeking of new experiences and the creative force of life. The three keeps us developing, questioning and growing and is a very appropriate number for our continued spiritual growth and development which is not possible without the engagement of our higher consciousness. In terms of the Fools journey he feels enlightened, free, wise and confident. He has a sense of fulfilment and completion but is ready for more.
Keyword completion, freedom, spiritual wholeness.
